Day 19: Body Lotion
This is a creamy and easy to make body lotion.
Recipe for Homemade Body Lotion:
- 1 1/4 cup hot water - heat in microwave for 1 minute
separately heat the wax and oil in microwave for 1 minute
- 1/4 cup emulsifying wax
- 1/4 cup olive oil
add the essential oil to the wax and oil after it is heated
- 24-36 drops essential oil
Then add the hot water to the hot wax in a pint jar.
*This recipe came from A Sonoma Garden here is a link to the original page.
*Note: I've had this separate on me, so I will let it cool for 30 minutes and then mix it and then again after 1 hour.
**Note: Because you are using water pay attention to the shelf life, I have had this get moldy after a month. So use it up! That batch didn't have essential oil it, and I think the essential oil helps keep the mold from growing.
